Hi, Is there a list of commands/parameters for writing a heat template?

The following page gives a good start, but it'd be really helpful if there was a list of parameters that you can use in a heat template. (All it says is indicate a parameter of your choice)

Any help/advice would be appreciated, thanks!

There is no list of "allowed" parameters - parameters are defined arbitrarily by the author of the template (i.e. you).

I think you mean properties of resources. Here is the documentation for those:

You're right, I had them confused. You follow the openstack native resources when you write HOT templates, and follow AWS compatible resources when you write cloudformation templates, right?

Not necessarily, you can mix-and-match them.
